The main room is stunning, but the bedrooms are poky and the cobbled-together triplex layout is awkward. Also, I expect updated bathrooms for 12 mil.

The proportions of the place are all wonky. Ceilings are too high, some rooms too big, some rooms too small. Great views, but I'd bring in an architect to attempt to make some sense of the place.

I liked this penthouse when it came on the market with a prior owner (and interior design), but the Memphis school makes me want to CLAW MY EYES OUT and eat them for breakfast.

I wonder if you could just turn it into two stories, no mezzanine.
|by Anonymous||reply 14||03/14/2019|
The mezzanine is structural. The great room couldn't exist without it.
|by Anonymous||reply 15||03/14/2019|
I meant, keep the structure of the mezzanine, but extend it and make it into a whole floor. Still have the great room, but with a lower ceiling.

I thought the bathroom was okay, I don’t think it needed renovation. There was just a patch of dark brown tile that I didn’t like.

That great room could make a person feel lonely, it's so huge.
That enormous TV at the foot of the bed would drive me straight over the edge into the oversized great room. Why do people do that?

That wouldn't work, R16. That's the way the building is built. It's not a modernization.

Gainsborough Studios has nicer, better proportioned, though smaller apartments in the same artist’s studio idiom. That’s where I’d live if I had this kind of money.

No Manhattan realtor ever says something is small, even when one can hardly move around a queen sized bed in a space.
Oh and this kitchen, it's fully functional!

This apartment below has been on and off the market for years, may have sold several times. Its a few steps from the penthouse posted. It's always caught my eye. It's what I always pictured when I imagined a large two story apartment. It's got the standard McMansion living room that I always wanted as a child, in a finely crafted classic building.

R3 is correct. The overall effect is wonky at best. The space could be beautiful, but it does need a lot of help to get there. I appreciate Ettore Sottsass and have some of his Alessi and ceramic pieces in my home, but a great furniture designer he was not. The art itself, it's positioning and those wacky shelves are all terrible - REALLY BAD. The dated track lighting looks like something that was discarded after a cheap 1970's apartment building was leveled to make room for new condos in south Florida. I love the windows and the roof deck is stunning. 1980's kitchens and bathrooms look like Hell period - I don't care who designed them. Keep the spirit, but use newer, sleeker materials and get rid of all of that mold and rotten grout. You can work with the high ceilings pretty easily, you just have to try a little harder. Here is a hint - don't hang art up the fucking roof. If a piece goes that high, it better take up most of the wall. This apartment looks like it was designed by an 18 yoa straight college student who has no interest whatsoever in either architecture or design.

R25. “He” is DL favorite Steve Gold, realtor and former model from Million Dollar Listing New York. His sexuality is much discussed on innumerable MDLNY threads, but he’s supposedly straight. Great body, very sexy, despite not knowing how to pronounce triplex. Ugly apartment.

Thank you, r42. I wonder if it was originally two apartments. One of the bathrooms is laid out like a kitchen.
I used to live on 69th between Columbus and Broadway, and I would walk across 67th Street every morning to walk to work. One of those blocks people dream of living in when they move to New York.

Poky in the other sense of the word, R47: uncomfortably small and cramped.
I agree that the apartment posted at R42 is miles above the originally posted apartment, in terms of both character and proportion.
